Here they are!





I just wanted to let everyone know that the delivery went really well. We didn't have to do a c-section or anything! I would have done this sooner, but last night I only got maybe 2 hours of sleep. This is going to be a challenge, but feel so blessed. their personalities are completely different. Elysee is mellow and a really easy baby, Dean on the other hand is high maintenance! They look completely different. In fact I don't think that I have ever seen twins look so NOT alike. Dean definitely has Johns nose! I think he looks like a cute little old man. John said that he looks like one of Santa's elves. Elysee looks just like a little princess. Everything is in perfect proportion and so tiny. Right now they have their days and nights mixed up, so hopefully that will change soon. I don't think Ella has decided how she feels about the babies yet. She is so excited that there are babies. She likes to hold the babies and move a little bit, so the babies will also move. But when she is decided that she is done, she tries to push them away. She is attention starved right now. My mom took Ella for a couple of nights and Ella loved it. Then my mother-in-law took her for a couple of nights. I'm sure she is having a blast right now.
It is amazing to me to see such perfect little beings come into this world. When you see miracles like that it makes you wonder how some people don't believe there is a God. Heavenly Father has blessed our family with so much and now two more wonderful blessings. I am excited for this next crazy chapter in our lives.

Elysee (pronounced Ailey say) Lydia Eisenhart - 5 lbs. 1 oz. - 18.5 inches long - born 8/20/08 @ 3:03 PM

What beautiful little babies. I am so glad that things went as well as they did. Good-luck with all you will have to do in the next couple of weeks. I agree that when you see the beauty of bring a new baby (or babies in your case) into this world you are reminded of how much our Heavenly Father loves us!

Kelli
I love how they each have their own look. You are the woman to have 10 lbs. of baby inside and to have such a smooth delivery!

Ella does seem grown up and what a little helper you'll have around the house.

Congrats again, and I can't wait to sneak by this week so say hi.
